Activity briefing

The hills behind Kaş are uniquely suited for paragliding which, because of their size and location produces the steady updrafts, which make paragliding challenging and so much fun.

Tandem paragliding leaves you free to enjoy the experience while the flying is in the hands of Captain Veske and his team of professional pilots.

Every passenger is briefed and issued with a helmet, and all pilots carry reserve chutes and communication systems.

Itinerary

From Bougainville Travel’s office pick-up area, the take off point is less than 20 minutes from Kaş and at a height of 600 meters approx (2000 ft).

The hills are situated in such a way that the gliders can safely come close to them giving you the chance to see wildlife such as eagles or mountain goats.
Your flight of 20 to 30 minutes will take you over mountain ridges and will give you a bird’s eye view of the Old Town of Kaş, its harbour, the peninsula and of course, the Greek island of Kastellorizo (Meis).

If you try tandem paragliding, you will never forget the experience!

Excellent Paragliding Adventure. I felt assured. I would like to highly recommend Bougainville Travel

Children Policy

Children must weigh at least 25kg (to fit in the harness) and must have the permission of a parent or guardian. Once the parents of a child approve a flight, the child does not have to be accompanied by parent or guardian at all times. Sometimes parents want to go up with them, sometimes they want to stay in the harbour and watch them landing. Please let the pilot know in advance your preferences.

Safety

Always safety first! The Bougainville Travel pilots and their captain believe in safety first and always. They want their customers to have a great experience but a safe one. Your safety is paramount and ensured by our three experienced pilots who fly up to six sorties a day, every day, taking all sizes of passengers on this amazing adventure.

Due to the limits of the harness the maximum weight of any participant cannot surpass 120 kg.

Every passenger is briefed and issued with a helmet and all pilots carry reserve chutes and communication systems. There is no flight if there is any meteorological contra-indication on any given day. The paragliding team has great self-confidence and discipline coupled with over 20 years of experience. There are no other “secrets” to safety in paragliding than these.

Many of the Bougainville pilots first gained their experience in the Turkish military and from that they learned discipline in looking at the big picture and never trusting anything to chance. The Team Captain is personally responsible for checking both his own equipment as well as that of his co-pilots and in determining the attitudes and abilities of his customers. He is always monitoring the weather conditions and will call off a flight if the weather is not acceptable.

Another safety point for tandem flying is that the Team Captain always goes last after his co-pilots have safely taken off from the starting point. This way he is able to check the equipment and attitude of each passenger one last time and to help get the passenger and pilot started successfully for take off. When it is his turn he uses the vehicle driver to assist in his take off. He believes no other paragliding organization uses helpers this much.

Capacity

We can take 3 passengers on a single sortie. The daily limit for this adventure depends entirely on weather conditions. In ideal conditions, on a long day, it is possible to fly as much as 9 times in a day which makes a daily capacity of 27 passengers. Usually we average between 5 and 6 sorties per day.
